Siskins are seed-eaters. Mostly they are busy in the crowns of trees but when the seeds drop they can also forage on the ground. Seeds that have been frozen into the snow from the road can sometimes be released all at once – when the cold decreases and the road thaws.

Similar behaviour can also be seen towards spring on the ice of lakes and rivers but there it is not dangerous for the siskins: LINK
